Baby born in moving train slips down toilet, survives

A woman on board a train at Bhojipura railway station gave birth to a baby girl inside a toilet, but the newborn slipped and fell on the tracks from the moving train. Miraculously, though, she survived and has been admitted to a local hospital for treatment.

Passengers on board the 52204 Tankapur Izzat Nagar train were alerted by the woman's cries for help as the train moved along. On reaching her, they found her bleeding profusely, frantically asking for the train to be stopped. Within minutes, passengers pulled the alarm chain and brought the train to a halt. Fellow travellers soon ran towards the baby and found that she was alive.

Government Railway Police (GRP) personnel was immediately informed about the incident and both, the newborn and her mother, were rushed to a primary health centre (PHC) nearby. A team of doctors, including PHC in charge Dr Saurabh Singh, is attending the duo.
As news about the incident spread and local residents made a beeline at the PHC to have a look at the "miracle baby", many of whom promptly expressed a desire to adopt her.

Talking to TOI, divisional railway manager, Izzat Nagar division, Chandra Mohan Jindal said, "It is a miracle that the newborn girl, after falling on concrete boulders of the track from such a height, survived. The GRP and fellow passengers did a commendable job by immediately rushing both the mother and the child to hospital."

During investigation, the woman, identified as Pushpa Devi, a resident of Mohan Nagar Bhagatpur of Kanchanpur district in Nepal, said she had come to Bareilly for an eye check-up and experienced labour pain during the journey. She told police that her husband had deserted her and that she has been supporting herself by doing odd jobs in the neighbourhood.
